Reviews: Murder On The Orient Express 2017

Excellent for a first-timer

I'm aware that the mixed reception is at least partially due to "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny, the well known nature of the plot twist, and modern cynicism towards reboots in general. Oh, and the Narm of Kenneth Branaugh's moustache. Fair enough, some things can't be controlled.

But I'd like to have it on record that this version is an amazing film in it's own right, and if you have somehow missed the old versions, than this movie is a great way to discover this classic story. The acting is spot-on, the set design is gorgeous, and the soundtrack is absolutely beautiful. I had a blast watching this story for the first time in the theatre, and I really think that anyone who gives it a fair shot will not be disappointed.
